Ah okay. I've heard good things about Dr. Everman :) I've never used anyone but Dr. Bridges before but I'd imagine its a ton more to go to GP than to come out to Eagle Point, LOL.

In a way you always hope it's some sort of teeth problem or lameness because then you don't have to admit the mares are sometimes just pissy (-coughcough-SELENA-coughcough-) xD

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

I love the FAllon Taylor drill where you just work the pattern from all angles and just keep moving counter clockwise. LOVE LOVE LOVE.

I'm adding a little information about the whole 1D, 2D, 3D, and 4D splits..I've been asked recently and a thread was started about it so I figured I'd add it here..

I stole this from Bubba because she's not here to post it and it's a very good example.
1D = fastest time of the day
2D = fastest horse that is equal to or slower than the agreed-upon split (typically 1/2 second from the 1D time)
3D = fastest horse that is equal to or slower than the agreed-upon split (typically 1 second from the 1D time)
4D = fastest horse that is equal to or slower than the agreed-upon split (typically 2 seconds from the 1D time)

Here is a link that have actual show results that you can read through and get a feel for the "D"s
http://www.southeasternarena.com/pdf...02-25-2012.pdf

I actually believe I may make a video about it..I can't find a good one on youtube and I can explain it better in words than I can writing it down..

i do a ton of this with my boy every time he does a good few barrel patterns we switch and his treat is getting to move faster or relax depending on his mood hes a verry go go go horse. but you def right on the videos when my 9 month old isnt sleeping i tend to watch vids, and theres always someone else out there with a new idea on what to do with your horse in every aspect of barrels. i dont believe any ammount of training is bad for a horse. me and splash are running into a few... holes with the spook in place witch makes him stop in the middle of a race witch kinda thros you off guard. lol but were getting there! at least im not running an under trained crazy horse when he spooks! another thing i have done with him to help with flying leads is figure 8's i feel like if i do them before i do work on barrels i have a lot less "hopping" to get to the right lead and the ride is faster and smoother. i just want to say teeth are verry important too!

It's good to change up the different drills that you work on with your horse, but also remember that you don't need to do barrel drills too much, your horse can get sour from just doing the different drills over and over again every time you ride him...Take him on trail rides and make sure that he remembers that every time you ride isn't about work and barrels.

Here is the Fallon Taylor drill I like:


My mare likes it, plus, you can add in all kinds of tune up stuff into it.
